by Patty Brant Immokalee BulletinNew York, Paris, London. The world looks to these famous cities as centers of fashion. But where do the people behind the fashions come from? Places like Immokalee? Could be. At least one Immokalee native is paying his dues, working hard to make it in the fashion industry. Tylor Lane is already building his career. He graduated from Beacon in 2001 and iTECH in 2013 where he studied Multi Media Design under Jaime Hernandez. Earlier this year he landed a contract to do some graphics design work for a fashion show in Pittsburgh. That original two-week contract job turned into ve months. He found opportunities there, spending time with other designers and learning from them. He even w ent on casting calls for models. In all, it's been a sort of apprenticeship and he says he's gotten a whole fashion education. Always a visual person, with the knowledge Tyler received at iTECH, he started his own graphics and audio video company in 2010. His company, EGO, does entertainment production graphics, audio video and even band events. As if that weren't enough, now he's designing his own show. The name EGO Entertainment came from his astrological sign, Gemini, and provides entertainment from the best of both worlds his inner and outer self. Of course, Tyler can design your website and yers. He also has an online fashion company he calls Famouz Clothing Company and launched his own Mid-Summer Fashion Event July 26 with other fashion designers. He is currently involved in planning a similar project for Valentine's Day weekend. Tyler is very proud of his handmade oneof-a kind gown showpiece the rst he ever did, for the fashion event. His creation was inspired by Byonce's black and white American ag ensemble. Tyler has branded his Famouz Clothing Company with the colors red, black and white, re ecting his own bold fashion sense, but said his company offers styles for all people of all shapes. Tyler is starting to actually make some of his own line designer clothes for other companies to sew. Check out the unisex Tshirt, tank tops, hoodies and sweats on his website. You can order his fashions online from his "pop up shop at or online at FamouzClothingCo. com. Tyler said he's looking forward to returning to Southwest Florida, maybe Naples or Fort Myers, where he can continue and expand his fashion career. Growing up in Immokalee, Tyler said he always wanted to have, and to make things, knowing it would happen "only if I did it." So now he's doing it. On his own. His own way. Looking back at his beginnings, Tyler is beholden to many people the Immokalee Foundation and his mentor Ed Hernandez, his moms Patricia Lane Green and Calvette Powell; his grandmother Al ree Jackson; and godmothers Katherine Hughes, Victoria Carr and Delicia Powell. "I never thought I'd actually be doing it!" Tyler said looking back on the last few months. Tyler or "King Famouz" wants to be a mogle. In fact, he's looking forward to someday being a household word with his designs in home dŽcor as well as clothing. He reasons "If Martha Stewart can do it, why not King Famouz?"

Our nearly 45,000 students started the 20142015 school year with smiling faces and an excitement to learn. I saw those smiling faces as I spent some time visiting Immokalee area schools on the rst day of school. Of course, mixed in with those smiling faces there were a handful of cautious, "don't let go of my hand, mom" faces on some rst time students. My back-to-school tour started at Immokalee High School where students led through the gymnasium as they arrived on campus. Their goal: to get their class schedule. A few lines on a blue paper outlined what their school days were going to look like during the rst semester. Students greeted friends with hugs as they maybe saw each other for the rst time since summer began, then they quickly moved on to comparing schedules trying to gure out which classes they shared and who had which teachers. For my next stop, I headed to Eden Park Elementary School as our youngest of students started their day. The cafeteria was full of giggling, chatting, and rst-day energy as students sat at assigned tables by grade level eating a free breakfast (something they can get every school day). Moms and dads either sat with them or stood on the sidelines watching their kids interact with friends. As I walked around, I saw our tiniest of students, our Pre-K group, with Sophia the First and Transformer back packs that were about three sizes too big. Some had big smiles and others some tears as they learned how to navigate through the breakfast line. I'm sure it was a bit overwhelming for them. Not only are they staying at school without mom or dad, but there are a lot of decisions to be made in a very short amount of time! Milk, juice, or both? Breakfast pizza or cereal? Fruit or raisins? I'm sure now that we are a few days into the school year, they've picked up on how things work and are a bit more comfortable with how this whole school business works. My last stop was Immokalee Middle School as they opened their doors to 6th graders for the rst time in quite a few years. Instead of staying at their elementary schools for 6th grade, these students joined the ranks of "middle schooler" right alongside their 7th and 8th grade counterparts. "It looks like a high school," was a comment I overheard as I walked around the courtyard. Another student looked at Principal Abel Jaimes with a thumbs up saying "I loved rst period." And while cautiously nervous looks were certainly on those 6th grade faces, they sure did look con dent about themselves in their coordinating red polo shirts. They are ready to take on a year of changing classes, new friends, and lots of learning. So all in all, the 2014-2015 school year is off to an exciting start! I look forward to hearing about all of the great successes that I'm sure will happen in our Immokalee schools this year. And, of course, I will share those great stories with you every week. Students First WEST PALM BEACH With Aug. 11 here, Florida Public Utilities hopes this date on the calendar, 8/11, will serve as a natural reminder for residents to call 811 prior to any digging project to have underground utility lines marked. When calling 811, homeowners and contractors are connected to Sunshine State One-Call, the local one call center, which noti es the appropriate utility companies of their intent to dig. Professional locators are then sent to the requested digging site to mark the approximate locations of underground lines with ags, spray paint or both. Striking a single line can cause injury, repair costs, nes and inconvenient outages. Every digging project, no matter how large or small, warrants a call to 811. Installing a mailbox, building a deck, planting a tree and laying a patio are all examples of digging projects that need a call to 811 before starting. "On Aug. 11 and throughout the year, we remind homeowners and professional contractors alike to call 811 before digging to eliminate the risk of striking an underground utility line," said Mike McCarty, Safety, Compliance and Training Manager for Florida Public Utilities. The depth of utility lines can vary for a number of reasons, such as erosion, previous digging projects and uneven surfaces. Utility lines need to be properly marked because even when digging only a few inches, the risk of striking an underground utility line still exists. Visit for more information about 811 and safe digging practices. Call FPU before starting a dig


~Every Child is a Human Caution Sign~ TALLAHASSEE, Fla.— August brings the end of the summer break and the beginning of a new school year in Florida. It’s an ideal time for focusing on child safety, and the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles will do just that by launching its Child Safety Awareness Month. The theme of this inaugural awareness campaign is “Every Child is a Human Caution Sign.” “Whether playing in the yard, riding in the backseat of a vehicle, or waiting at a school bus stop, a child is a human caution sign, “ said Captain Nancy Rasmussen, Chief of Public Affairs for the Florida Highway Patrol. “They are living reminders that we need to slow down, pay attention, and abide by trafc laws for their safety as well as our own.” Each week, DHSMV will focus on different traf c related safety issues involving children, such as seatbelts and child restraints, bicyclist and pedestrian tips, school bus safety, and making sure a child is not behind the vehicle when backing up. The Department, in partnership with other state agencies, will be distributing safety reminders, such as: Be Alert While Backing  Walk around your vehicle to check for children playing.  Turn off your radio to better hear your surroundings.  Keep your foot on the brake until you completely shift into reverse.  Back out slowly.  Teach children to never play in, on, around, or under vehicles.  Know your vehicle’s blind spots and look again before backing. Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety  While on a bicycle, ride in the same direction as traf c and obey all traf c signs, signals and lane markings.  Always use a headlight and taillight at night.  Pedestrians should use the sidewalk if there is one; if not, walk on the side of the road facing traf c.  Always cross streets where pedestrians are expected, such as corners and crosswalks.  And be visible. Wear bright and re ective colors on your clothes, shoes and/or wristbands. Bus Safety  Motorists are required to stop when approaching a school bus that is stopped with its red lights ashing and STOP arms extended.  The only time traf c approaching an oncoming school bus does not need to stop, is if there is a raised barrier such as a concrete divider or at least ve feet of unpaved space separating the lanes of traf c.  Motorists should be alert and watch for children especially near schools, bus stops, school buses, and in school parking lots.  At bus stops, children should wait in a safe place away from the road.  Children should never walk behind a bus.  Remember, Stop on Red, kids ahead! Seatbelts and Child Restraints  Buckle up. A seatbelt is your vehicle’s most important safety feature, but it onl y works if you use it.  Florida law requires the use of seat belts by drivers of motor vehicles and all children riding in a vehicle under the age of 18.  Keep children in the back seat, at least through age 12, if possible. Front seat air bags, when deployed, can be dangerous to children.  A new law taking effect in January 2015 will require children 4 and 5 years of age to ride in a booster seat.

Arenda ingles en el Centro Tcnico An Immokalee man suffered serious injuries in a crash August 15. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, 21-year-old Nelson Elias Espinoza of Immokalee was eastbound on R 850 (Corkscrew Road) in a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse, while Mulberry resident Miguel Sanchez DeNieto, 54, was westbound in a 1999 Mack tractor. Mr. Espinoza’s right wheels left the road onto the grass shoulder. His vehicle traveled to the left and he over-corrected. Mr. Espinosa lost control of his vehicle, which then exited the eastbound lane and entered the westbound lane. Mr. DeNieto steered to the right to avoid the collision, but the Mitsubishi‘s front struck the tractor’s front. The Mitsubishi then traveled south and came to nal rest on the south grass shoulder. Mr. DeNieto’s vehicle traveled right, exited the road and jack-knifed on the grass shoulder. Mr. Espinoza was transported to Lee Memorial Hospital in serious condition and Mr. DeNieto was taken to North Collier Hospital with minor injuries. Both men were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash. Alcohol was not a factor in the crash. Mr. Espinoza was charged with careless driving. Immokalee man involved in crash


Submitted photo/ Manny TouronCobras &U7 boys win national at Wide World of SportsThe U7 boys traveled to The Wide World of Sports in Disney two weeks ago after qualifying for the nals at the San Carlos 3 V 3 tournament. The boys have been training with Coach Bulmaro Hernandez and Coach Hector Barrera and are part of the team that will be playing this season in the Southwest Florida League. The boys had only played once in this type of format which is very different from their regular style of playing. At Disney they were part of a 25 team Under 7 group. After the regular round the boys were seeded # 1 after outscoring the opposition 40 goals scored to only 7 allowed. In the quarter nals and semi nals they outscored the opposition 18 to 5. The Championship ended in a tie but the boys brought home the trophy on a victory by penalty kicks. It was a great weekend of soccer for all involved. The team would like to thank all of the people and businesses that helped with the trip expenses. Keep an eye on these boys as they start the league play in October. Pictured are from left: Coach Hernandez, David, Brandon, Yoel and Ivan. 4 Immokalee Bulletin August 21, 2014 Submitted photoMinisters celebrate Back-to-schoolOn Saturday, August 9, the Immokalee Ministerial Alliance (I.M.A) hosted their rst, collaborative Back-to-School Giveaway at Allen Chapel A.M.E Church.
